Wesley Snipes has been granted court permission to leave the United States in order to work on a couple of films.
As blogged about here, the action film star asked for the travel OK to head to London and then Bangkok in connection with movie roles.
Snipes, just in case you've forgotten, was convicted in March of three misdemeanor counts of failing to file returns on $13.5 million in earnings. He was sentenced to three years in federal prison, but has been free on bail while appealing the conviction.
Judge William Terrell Hodges signed off on the
work travel request just before the Independence Day holiday, despite prosecution
objections to the Thailand project's open-ended return date.
